Membership renewal

SHARE

Every year, the Collège sends a membership renewal notice by newsletter to all physicians registered on the Roll of the Order.

This page contains essential information about renewing your membership for 2019-2020. The Collège’s secure site will open for membership renewal on February 12, 2019.

Modification of the membership period

In 2018, the Collège’s Board of Directors decided to change the membership period which, for many years, has run from July 1 to June 30, in order to align it with the Collège’s fiscal year, which is established by the Professional Code and runs from April 1 to March 31.

To make the transition, the 2018-2019 membership period was, exceptionally, nine months, from July 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019.

Therefore, as of this year, the new membership period from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020 will come into effect.

Communication with members
 
Electronic methods given priority

The Collège stopped doing bulk paper mail-outs two years ago and gives priority to electronic methods to communicate with its members. The Collège’s website, its secure site and its newsletters are the main channels of communication used.

Mandatory valid email address

It is important to note that under section 60 of the Professional Code, members are now required to provide their professional order with a valid email address, established in their name. Physicians must therefore provide an email address that includes either their first name, their surname or both.

They must also advise the secretary of any change in this respect within 30 days of the change. Note also that this address will be kept confidential, since the Collège decided not to avail of the option of including a professional email address on the Roll of the Order.

Steps to take to make sure you receive the newsletters

The Collège recommends that its members check their messaging service’s security settings to see if addresses ending in “@cmq.org” have accidentally been put on the blocked senders or spam list and, if so, take them off the list.
